Proverbs 19:17 tells us, “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.”
If God has placed it on your heart to give to those in need during this holiday season, please join us for our Season of Prayer and Giving for the month of November.
We have teamed up with several organizations within our community to donate to various nonprofits. These charities include the Toy Drive to provide toys for underprivileged children, Box of Blessings to offer heartwarming gifts to Homeless Women and the Coat Drive to donate coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to those who will need help staying warm this winter.
We have made it easy for you to give and have provided several options for you to choose from for your convenience. Please visit fbcglenarden.org/give/ to give online or to find further instructions for giving in person, via check or mail.
We are so grateful for your kind and generous heart, and we pray that God rewards you exceedingly and abundantly for your thoughtfulness and obedience.
